Reviews

"A bare knuckle, punk rock fever dream about American health care."

--Joshua Mohr, author of Model Citizen

"What starts as a compulsively readable futuristic thriller subtly turns into a character story about a woman finding herself, and finding meaning, in a deeply flawed world. Do not pass this book up; read it today."

--Sara Gran, author of The Book of the Most Precious Substance

"A scathing indictment of the rehab industrial complex, Jim Ruland's Make It Stop is an intoxicating cocktail of crime and conspiracy, set to a SoCal punk soundtrack. A neo noir thriller I found impossible to put down, or forget."

--Elizabeth Hand, author of The Book of Lamps and Banners

"Make It Stop is a zany, heartfelt, hold-on-to-your-butts rollercoaster about vigilantism and sobriety and what happens when the institutions of healing are also happy to kill you. Welcome to Jim Ruland's too believable near future of debtors' hospitals and private police. Capitalism: it's one hell of a drug."

--Steph Cha, author of Your House Will Pay

"A punk-rock thrill ride."

--Francesca Lia Block, author of House of Hearts
